This after school program is designed to help 8-12 year olds improve their understanding of science engineering mathematics design and technology through the use of real-world projects. Once a week an architect-educator from the Salvadori Center works with youth at the community center on special projects to help the students expand their math and science learning. Because children in the program work mainly in small groups they also learn to cooperate with one another analyze problems to find solutions and share what they have learned through writing and oral presentations. Some of the project based educational activities include: building scale models of New York City bridges (mathematics); create drawings of their communities (art); figure out why buildings stand up (physical science); construct models of skyscrapers (engineering); learn patience and precision in their work (life skills).
